Sights

Ogi is famous for its taraibune – round boats made from huge barrels designed for collecting shellfish in the many coastal inlets. Today they're mainly used by women in traditional fisher-folk costumes to give short rides (¥500, 10 minutes) to tourists. Buy tickets from the marine terminal to the west of the ferry pier.

For travellers with their own wheels (two or four will do), the coast west of Ogi is riddled with caves and coves ripe for exploring: follow the road. Further around the point, the rocky coast gives way to sandy beaches, such as So-bama (素浜), along Mano-wan.
